Skillshare workshops on community-led topics to help you upskill!
Dealing out tricks of the trade.
Bigger Sister Channel workshops are run once a month in person or online, with a different “Bigger Sister” expert presenter for each session. Majority of our in person workshops are held in Melbourne but in 2023 we expanded to hosting Admin Days in Brisbane. With enough interest and community effort, we hope the extend our workshops to a city near you.
Each workshop is “future proofed” in a variety of ways so the knowledge remains accessible via our platforms for the community. We are also creating supplementary materials to support your learning.
We work in collaboration with skilled sex workers and experts. Educators and learners come together to trade vital skills, expertise, knowledge, resources, tools and capabilities to help sex workers work in a healthy, safe, and sustainable way. Most importantly, presenters are self-elected, that means if you have the skills, we will help you facilitate a peer-to-peer education workshop.
Topics are community-lead, so they can be on anything that helps you: screening, mental health, copywriting, touring, content creation, kink, safety, health, burnout, SEO and more.

economic empowerment PROGRAM
The skills to pay the bills.
Improving the financial wellbeing of sex workers through in-depth training explored over a series of modules.
For many of us, fluctuating income, constantly changing expenses and sudden debt can lead to living large one day, survival mode the next.
Our flagship program aims to improve the financial wellbeing of sex workers by exploring our relationship toward money over a series of educational modules.
To break the cycle of instability, we look at 6 key components that help us get a handle on our economic situation: financial literacy, financial behaviours, financial resilience, financial attitudes, financial inclusion and financial capabilities.
We bring in experts in different fields and skilled sex workers to provide a variety of perspectives on the worlds of personal finance, tax and all things money. Our guests and guides help us to simplify daunting systems and operations, providing you with a clear path to your duties and opportunities.
We take a holistic approach to education, delivery material through our 5 Pillars:
- Skillshare workshops
- Interviews (w/ experts + pros)
- Storytelling (w/ sex workers)
- Community podcast (w/ rolling guests)
- Bigger Sister Youtube channel
By the end you’ll be
Pretty in green (and out of the red).
